I live in worcester,ma. I have a pro-94 that works fine. I tried over an over to program the 95 with the Massachusetts State Police Troop C - MOT. freq. in mot mode. It will not work! I used my 94 an mirrored both scanners. The freqs. were way off. And the MOT Mode has to be turn to NON-Trunk mode in order for it to work. I tried taking it to Radio Shack they had no clue an thought i didnt know what i was talking about. Any clue on whats going on with my scanner or should i just throw it off a cliff!

Re: My 95 is way off - Freqs,Mode not working...Grrr!
MORE AND MORE POLICE AGENCIES ARE SWITCHING TO "DIGITAL TRUNKING". I CAN ONLY PICK UP PARTS OF MY LOCAL SHERIFFS STATIONS. RADIO SHACK HAS THE NEW dIGITAL TRUNKING SYSTEMS THEY COST ABOUT $500. I AM UP GRADING NOW.
FOR TRUNKING ... WHEN YOU GET A ACTIVE CHANNELL KEEP HITTING THE RED TRUNK BUTTON TILL YOU SEE THE MOTOREOLA 5 NUMBEWR ID.THJEN HIT ENTER.
I WANT THE NEW PROGRAMER THAT IS FAST ENOUGH TO FOLLOW DIGITAL HYPER-TRUNKING. ALL POLISE ARE GOING TO IT EVENTUALLY.

You have to be in "VFO" mode. Your best bet on that extremely difficult to use radio, is to get "chirp" and the proper cable and program it via a computer. If you search on-line for "baofeng programming" you may find an alternate set of instructions. Your absolute best bet: throw that PoS away and get a Yaesu FT-60.
It is difficult to explain in simple terms but I will try.
Some radios can have their firmware updated but I don't think your PRO 2066 can.
Channel numbers and frequencies preprogrammed into your scanner have changed over the past few years.
When a data signal says go to channel X that channel is now Y, but your scanner is still looking for X
Hope this helps
Your scanner has somehow gotten out of alignment, and there's no way to fix it with just a screwdriver. Your best bet for repair is your local Radio Shack. If they can't do the repair they should be able to refer you to a local, or they can ship it off for alignment.
i recently bought a uniden bc72xlt and had no freqs. found some for my area at these sites.try www.scanner master.com*-frequency resources and home of police and call,www.radioreference.com,www.bearcat1.com,hope some of these sites help you out.
If you are getting "cross over" on freqs, then you need to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. You have some bad parts inside and only with the proper electronic gear can you locate them. Plus it will need to be retuned.
